The A-Class was all-new for 2019, so there shouldn’t be anything groundbreaking coming to the lineup for 2020. As one of Mercedes-Benz’s smallest cars, the A-Class doesn’t need much power to get going, and as such we’ll continue to see the same turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood that makes 188 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. The powertrain is good for a claimed 7.1-second 0-60 mph time.
The cars are well-equipped out of the box, and include a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate controls, power seats, over-the-air software updates, a seven-inch touchscreen HD Radio, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto functionality.
Advanced safety features are locked up in a $2,250 Driver Assistance Package that includes rear cross-traffic alerts, blind-spot monitors, lane keep assist, lane change assist, and more. There’s also a $1,090 parking package that brings a surround-view camera and active parking assistance.
The A-Class joins a growing line of tiny luxury cars that includes the Audi A3 and BMW 1 Series and 2 Series. Pricing should stay close to the previous year’s number of $32,500 when we see the new cars later this year.
